Come hell or high water, Emmy Jo Massey will have a wedding. After three generations of Massey women with children out of wedlock, she wants the whole town of Hickory, Texas, to witness the legitimacy of her union with Logan Grady. But dream weddings aren't cheap. So she accepts a highly lucrative stint as a home health assistant to retired realtor, and town recluse, Seth Thomas - a decision her great-grandmother Tandy is dead-set against.

Hunky cowboy Ace Riley wasn't planning on settling down, but his family had other plans for him.

Fiesty city-girl Jasmine is just helping out her friend - that is, until their first kiss stirs up a whole mess of trouble, and suddenly discretion is thrown to the wind. One hot cowboy, one riled up woman...and they'll be married for a year, like it or not!

What made the experience of listening to The Bridge to a Better Life the most enjoyable?

I have read nearly all of Ava MIles' books, and The Bridge is the best by far. I love her writing and enjoy the Dare River and Dare Valley series; however, The Bridge is deep, heart wrenching, intense, and powerful, I am an English Literature teacher, and I enjoy her break from reality, yet this book impacted my soul as good literature does. I am thoroughly impressed and changed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, cried, and felt a deep gnawing in my soul to change my own behavior just as Claire.
